V.6.8 Pompeii. House.

According to the plan in Massimo Osanna’s book this is referred to as “Casa 3”.

See Osanna M., 2019. Pompei. Il tempo ritrovato. Le nuove scoperte. Milano: Rizzoli, p. 216, fig. 4.

 

Only the western street front has been excavated, c.1902, 1905-8.

As this area has not been fully excavated yet, it is extremely difficult to see and show exactly where the entrances were.

We have followed the plan as Eschebach drew it in 1969, as best we can.

Until this area is fully excavated, this may or may not be the correct number of entrances.

In order to improve the drainage and security for visitors to the site, the soil, ash and exuberant vegetation was removed from the slope of the land on the east side of Via del Vesuvio (Insula V.6).
This cleared the area to enable the street boundary wall and rooms at its immediate rear to be viewed from Via del Vesuvio.

(c.2018-2019). In order to improve the drainage and security for visitors to the site, the soil, ash and exuberant vegetation was removed from the slope of the unexcavated land on the east side of Via del Vesuvio (Insula V.6).

This has cleared the area to enable the street boundary wall and rooms at its immediate rear to be viewed from Via del Vesuvio.

(Note: the roofed area where the lararium is seen above the wall, originally we had identified as V.6.7.
According to Massimo Osanna's book the lararium area is shown as casa 4 and the three front rooms to the north (left) is casa 3.
There does not seem to be a doorway entering the lararium area from this roadway or casa 3, so perhaps the numbered entrance doorway would be further at the rear, still buried. 
Therefore, perhaps the doorway with the large blocks in centre left, is now V.6.8.)
